Calvert Marine Museum, Solomons Island, Maryland






Drum point lighthouse which was originally located just two miles from where it was permanently relocated to the museum



rays and skates

















Margaret and Cecil in the lighthouse












ringing the bell








on the first level of the lighthouse






I loved the staircases







Once a month, the family living in the lighthouse would receive a box of books, magazines and the like from the coast guard


















the outhouse was just a box attached to the main level...it originally had no bottom, so the contents would just drop into the sea






beautiful floors and furnishings in the living quarters...one family lived here for 27 years!





the children, if school age, would get picked up in the morning by a boat and be taken to school






going into the lighthouse through the hatch






a replica of John Smith's boat....in 2007 a group of 12 men used this boat to take the same route John Smith did
































otters











I wish I could find a tooth like this one!!!!





mermaid pouches
